Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure” ~ sent to me by Jo14
is moving stressful or a new adventure? i have lots of emails in my inbox saying “moving is so difficult…” and i’m like, really? it is?
sure moving internationally was stressful. but this move seems breezy by comparison. maybe it’s the perfect alignment of features: SOBRIETY + working at home + short distance to a NICER place + new neighbourhood to explore and food to taste + husband took the week off work to pack, clean, unpack, clean.
we went back to our old apt last night to have ‘good-bye drinks/tea’ with our downstairs neighbours. yeah, that was hard – hard to get off the metro in our ‘old’ neighbourhood, hard to walk back into our ‘old’ apartment to finish the cleaning and get the last bits from the fridge … hard to realize that we had good memories there and now they’re finished.
I was doing better on Wednesday and Thursday when I was here in the new place. Facing forward.
As Soon As I Went Back and started looking backward, i felt crappy.
face forward. good shit coming up!
